Celebrate Valentine’s Weekend with NCE and the music and passion of the great French romantic virtuoso composer Camille Saint-Saens, one of the most romantic composers of all time!

The perfect music for a weekend of romance, Camille Saint-Saëns was among the most brilliant of the late-Romantic musicians. NCE takes pleasure in devoting a rare complete evening to the music of the great master who in the United States was hailed as France’s greatest living composer. The music of Saint-Saens is accentuated by soaring melodies and thrilling virtuosity.

NCE artists featured are: Carlos Cesar Rodriguez (piano), Melissa Dvorak (harp), Leo Sushansky (violin/artistic director), Michelle Kim (violin), Sean Neidlinger (cello).

Program: Fantasie for Violin and Harp Op.124, Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 1, Op.75 and the Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op.92. The most beautiful music for a romantic occasion. The audience is invited to a reception following the performance. A perfect occasion to bring your Valentine.

Praised by the Washington Post for being “Delightful…abundant in jovial wit,” The National Chamber Ensemble’s society of internationally acclaimed musicians continue their 10th Season!
